List of streets in New Eiffel

!khās Street is the erstwhile designation of a street that was located in Új Repülő, the capital city of the former Principality of New Eiffel.[1] The street, which was entirely located on the New Eiffel Main Route 1 (02f), was roughly 11.8 m (38.7 ft) long and stretched from Triple Junction (A junction with the westbound Dead Tree Lane (03f) in Leon Montan is Gay Street and the eastbound New Eiffel Main Route 1 in Új Repülő Street) to the New Eiffel-United Kingdom West Border. The street was designated on 28 December 2019, alongside Seat Street, making it one of the first two streets to be designated within New Eiffel. The street lost its designation upon New Eiffel's dissolution on 1 November 2020, and after it was incorporated into an Australissian state on 12 January 2021, the street did not re-receive the designation.

Name

"ǃkhās" means flower in the Khoekhoe language,[2] a language spoken in Namibia, however it is unknown why !khās Street was named after the word.

Street description

!khās Street in August 2018, looking west

!khās Street began at Triple Junction (A junction with the westbound Dead Tree Lane in Leon Montan is Gay Street and the eastbound New Eiffel Main Route 1 in Új Repülő Street), then headed west, where the route experienced a brief elevation. It then passed New Eiffel School and Jimbo's Gym to the north, and intersected Unnamed Circle – a roundabout – to the south, before passing 003-AB, the Mail Code for a privately-owned shed, to the south. It ended at the New Eiffel-United Kingdom West Border.[3][4]

History

The concrete pathway of the street had been around since at least the 1960s, or possibly earlier. It was mostly used for walking until about the late 2000s, when scooters and bicycles were allowed on the route, and after the New Eiffel Main Route 1 was naturally formed in January 2018 (by that time in the Republic of New Finland) it became termed as a road. Originally, the area of the roadway by 003-AB and New Eiffel School was considered an alleyway, though it lost that designation after the foundation of !khās Street.

!khās Street was officially designated on 28 December 2019 by the Minister of Transportation alongside Seat Street (which would later have its street designation revoked and become Seat Square), making it one of the first two streets to be designated within New Eiffel.[1] The street lost its designation upon New Eiffel's dissolution on 1 November 2020, and after it was incorporated into an Australissian state on 12 January 2021, the street did not re-receive the designation.

Locations

There were two buildings along the street, 003-AB, the Mail Code for a privately-owned shed, and an attached-building with Jimbo's Gym, a health fitness club and gym, and New Eiffel School, the only school in New Eiffel. The roundabout Unnamed Circle intersected with the street.[4] Due to the aforementioned factors, this made !khās Street the most important and valuable street in New Eiffel.
